The Detroit Tigers battled back against the Chicago White Sox on Opening Day in the Motor City thanks to Miguel Cabrera 

A backup catcher, and two new players in Austin Meadows and Javier Baez. 

With two outs and the bases loaded in the 8th inning, Cabrera singled home two runs to tie the game at 3. 

Jonathan Schoop was then hit by a pitch but last year's April hero 

Akil Baddoo tapped into a fielder's choice, sending the game into the 9th tied at 3. 

But Gregory Soto gave up a moonshot to Chicago's Andrew Vaughn to give the White Sox a 4-3 lead.  

Rookie Spencer Torkelson lead off the 9th for the Tigers but struck out 

Manager A.J. Hinch went to the bench in Eric Haase who worked the count full - and launched a no-doubter himself over the  left-field wall. 

Robbie Grossman struck out swinging on a 2-2 count but newcomer Austin Meadows tripled to deep right-center. 

Bringing up another fresh face to Detroit in Javier Baez, who singled against the right-field wall 

It was initially ruled a catch but later overturned upon review, giving the Tigers the  4-3 victory. 

The ball bounced off the wall before hitting the glove of right-fielder AJ Pollock. 

The weather, once again, was cold and wet but there's a lot of excitement around this Tigers team for the first time in years. 

The Tigers threatened in the bottom of the sixth when Jeimer Candelario singled in Robbie Grossman from third 

The Sox then brought in closer Liam Hendriks who got Baddoo to tap out.
